Disco Isn’t Dead

Southwest Michigan Symphony Orchestra Presents “Classical” Night Fever

Silver Beach, St. Joseph, MI

Saturday, August 11, 2018, 7:30pm Performance



You thought it was gone forever, but disco lives. The Southwest Michigan Symphony Orchestra (SMSO) presents a symphonic disco tribute show, Classical Night Fever, Saturday, August 11, 2018, 7:30pm at Shadowland Pavilion, Silver Beach County Park, 101 Broad Street,St. Joseph, MI 49085.


Partnering with the SMSO is Motor Booty Affair, a popular 70’s disco/funk tribute band who recently introduced this pops show highlighting 70s disco favorites. The band and orchestra will perform in costume to reflect when bell-bottoms, polyester outfits and platform shoes were all the rage.


Prior to the 7:30pm Classical Night Fever concert will be Silent Disco at 5:00pm. Silent Disco has a person slide on a set of wireless headphones, tune to the music and dance. No sounds are heard by the crowd, hence the term “silent disco,” but dancers hear disco in stereo, for a fun and unique way of experiencing the music.


The concert is part of a two-day, (August 10 and August 11), “Sips & Sounds” wine festival at Silver Beach, St. Joseph, MI hosted by the SMSO. Local and international wines will be available for tasting on both days.
